Sobre l'autor

Langston Hughes, February 1, 1902 - May 22, 1967 Langston Hughes, one of the foremost black writers to emerge from the Harlem Renaissance, was born on February 1, 1902, in Joplin, Mo. Hughes briefly attended Columbia University before working numerous jobs including busboy, cook, and steward. While mostra'n més working as a busboy, he showed his poems to American poet Vachel Lindsay, who helped launch his career. He soon obtained a scholarship to Lincoln University and had several works published. Hughes is noted for his depictions of the black experience. In addition to the black dialect, he incorporated the rhythms of jazz and the blues into his poetry. While many recognized his talent, many blacks disapproved of his unflattering portrayal of black life. His numerous published volumes include, "The Weary Blues," "Fine Clothes to the Jew," and "Montage of a Dream Deferred." Hughes earned several awards during his lifetime including: a Guggenheim fellowship, an American Academy of Arts and Letters Grant, and a Spingarn Medal from the NAACP. Langston Hughes died of heart failure on May 22, 1967. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

It’s bluesy poetry. I’m conflicted about this: in one sense, it’s basically kin to song lyrics, and the lyricism of popular music is the worst thing about that “music”, although on the other hand, pop lyrics, with fun rhymes and everything, can be a lot better than Hugh Auden poetry, you know. And it is easy to imagine it being re-worked as lyrics: a little bit more repetitive, with some fun-rhymes, basically…. And yeah, I read this to introduce Little Baby General Poetry to one man of color, to go along with the dozen whites, before I put him down for his nap, basically, you know: so I didn’t want to be the white gut that goes, Ah, man! Epithets still play basketball! Man, that’s heavy!…. Right? Or, you know, just: “I’m Hugh Auden and I have the pope wipe my ass and then wash his hands so that he can be my butler at dinner—(wink) Really, it’s a blackwoman, but just between you and me, you know…. (wink)….”

Yeah. There’s that. So I don’t know. I guess it is kinda fun, and honest, and occasionally thought-y, you know. If it had been re-worked, it could have been pop-soul lyrics, you know: not the bad stuff at all….

…. So yeah:

(Poet Hermes) In July, you can touch the sky….
(Scientist Hermes) No you can’t.
—Shut up.
—Don’t tell yourself to shut up.

…. The white man’s heart is as cold as ice
But the Black man dances, mighty nice

This book would be good for intermediate students. This book is "Sail Away" written by Langston Hughes, illustrated by Ashley Bryan, published in 2015. This book is a book of a bunch of poems about the sea on the shore of Maine and how magical and mystical the sea can be. I think this shows a good view of culture as the illustrations are very cultural and it has a good representation in it. I would use this in my class to teach about poetry and use this as a good example for kids to learn to write poetry.… (més)
